Unexpected and profound insights from smart people you’d like to meet. Today my guest is Jennifer Byrne, who is Professor of Molecular Oncology at the University of Sydney and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, in Sydney’s west. In this episode, Jennifer and I speak about her role at the Children’s Cancer Research unit, her current research interests and her scientific career. In her research, Jennifer analyses childhood and adult cancers at a molecular level, which involves working collaboratively with other researchers. In 2017 Professor Byrne was named in the international journal Nature’s top 10 "people who mattered" for her work in identifying research papers that could mislead researchers working on cancer treatments. Links to some of Professor Byrne’s research papers and articles are provided in the show notes. Here’s my conversation with Professor Jennifer Byrne.
